must come to an end, which, I suppose, is better than no good deed goes unpunished.
Watching my daughter sleep this morning, I saw…something. I can’t explain it, a particular shadow to her face. All I know is I saw it, and didn’t want to. I even very specifically did not mention it when chatting online to a friend earlier. The nurse called a while ago; the girl was in her office, complaining of feeling “seizurey.” I ran to the school to eyeball her. Pupils responsive, oriented x3, pallor but still good color in her nail beds, and she wanted to stay at school, so I let her. I’m 5 minutes from the school, 3 if I run, the nurse is on the premises and the girl has a full time para with her.
My daughter has the strongest spirit of anyone I know. If there’s any way she can keep going she wants to, she does, and she does while smiling one of those smiles that makes you smile back–and mean it. 🙂
I did get the unsurance stuff resolved this morning in less than an hour. That must be a record.
The six line wrasse is doing really well, cruising through the rockwork, picking off pods and eating prepared foods. And no, I am not preparing my own fish food, there’s a limit to my thriftiness (nuttiness?). So here I sit, watching the tank and holding my breath to see if the nurse is going to call back, if the girl will make it through her day.
Happy Chinese New Year. 🙂
